The ASBCI is a unique association in that our members represent connections with and knowledge of all the key sectors of the industry.

The ASBCI is the only association to bring together the clothing industry from fibre manufacture to garment manufacture, retail and aftercare.

A centre of technical and commercial excellence where companies at the forefront of the specific sectors can discuss, share, and develop practices, processes and initiatives that will benefit their organisations and the UK clothing supply chain as a whole.

ASBCI activities include technical seminars, conferences, publications and technical visits; a student programme of events with a conference, seminar and visits, as well as the annual Student Design and Innovation Awards and Dissertation Competition.

There is also a range of Handbooks available.  Members of the association can purchase these at a discounted rate.
